The charge carrier density of GaAs at 31o C is 2.25x106 cm-3.
What is the charge carrier density (in cm-3) at 175oC?

(The bandgap of GaAs is 1.42 eV. )

I am trying with arrhenius relationship but get confused over "charge carrier density"

  • chemistry -

    charge carrier density here means how many electrons per cm^3
    will go into conductivity band

    For temp1, 31C -> 304.2K

    2.25*10^6 = exp( - 2.275*10^-19 / (1.381*10^-23 * 304.2))

    For temp2, 175C -> 448.2K

    x = exp( - 2.275*10^-19 / (1.381*10^-23 * 448.2))

    put this into wolfram alpha

    (2.25*10^6/x) = exp( - 2.275*10^-19 / (1.381*10^-23 * 304.2)) / exp( - 2.275*10^-19 / (1.381*10^-23 * 448.2))

    => 8.09*10^13
